My latest piece of Torchon Lace. This is my favorite pillow. Dan and I made this pillow together, it was our very first piece of our Bobbin Lace Adventure.

These are some of my favorite flowers done in Withof techniques.

Poppy Project

This is my interpretation of the Poppy Project.
When I found this picture I knew it is the way Family Trees should be pictured!


Think about your family tree,
we start at the bottom and add our ancestors upwards .
I don't think we should start at the bottom.
Our ancestors are the roots in the ground
having lived and now are gone.
We should start at the bottom and add our children and reach for the sky.

Two lovely ladies.

I love to arrange my lace projects into a grouping and put them into a picture frame or onto a photo screen.

Lace flowers I made.

Lacemaker's Prayer

Guide my hands with speed and grace
To weave the intricacies of this lace.
Let the bobbins weave with ease
To create a pattern that will please.
Let there be Love in it's creation
And give it Artistry
in it's inspiration.
May special care keep the threads
from breaking.
And give me energy for it's making.
Allow this lace to bring joy and pleasure
and give to others a lifelong treasure.



"Hope" is the thing with feathers-
That perches in the soul-
And sings the tune
without the words-
and never stops- at all

(Emily Dickinson 1830- 1886)
